FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – STAR 88.3 hosted its 23rd annual Adoption Celebration Saturday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Sweetwater Sound.

This free, open-house style event began after Melissa Montana, President and CEO, brought her daughter home from Guatemala. The event hopes to bring adoptive and foster care families together to form a network of relationships and resources as they go through their journey.

The Adoption Celebration also gave families interested in either adopting or fostering children the opportunity to get information from a number of agencies present and have their questions answered.

The event featured Christian artist Billy Ballenger for a live mini concert from 4 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

There were also adoption testimonies, STAR 88.3 said. For children, there were costume masks, balloon art, a photo booth and refreshments.
